Scarves and Washcloths

We have a few really lovely new books in the shop! Scarves, Etc 4 from Quince & Co. is chock full of unusual scarf and cowl and shawl designs.


Knitting scarves is so gratifying. Nothing has to fit perfectly, gauge can be less than spot-on, you can play with new colors and patterns, and they keep you so cozy and warm!

I'm also loving these washcloth books. We only had a few in stock last time I checked, but I'm hoping Sally orders more copies of each.

We have one full of knitting designs and another full of cool crochet designs. I'm loving the serious ridges on some of those crocheted washcloths. Maybe this is a good time to practice some new crochet stitches.
Both books include some really cute patterns with great textures. We have some really nice cottons in the shop that would be just the thing for a few of these fun and practical little items.

Pattern books can be just the thing to jump start you into a new project. Pop in and take a look! We are open until 6 PM tonight with no Open Knit Night this week. Hope to see you soon.
